Yes but many a Kook in the Basement has been Correct... that 1600 page hypothesis may hold a sliver of information that allowed the next Eureka moment when a naked guy runs down the hallway... Consensus has actually seldom been correct completely and I can name many scientifically held consensuses that have been completely wrong once some kook in the basement got a few ivory towers to read what he has written.... Let's see Civilization is only 6k to 7k years from Hunter Gatherer to Us today... The earth is the center of the universe and resides in concentric transparent spheres.... The speed of Light is Constant...(That one you will have to read my hypothesis to figure out)....
I agree with you that an institution can corrupt an idea, which is what you're getting at I think. But your line of reasoning, to me, would turn science into Open Mic Night. I'm not sure how anything would get accomplished.

Also, no theory is absolutely true or perfect. We cannot peel back that final layer and gaze upon the naked universe. Whatever works, works. That's how it works. The theory that works best given our current understanding and technology is going to be the prevailing theory. It doesn't matter if it later gets overturned. Hindsight is 20/20, but foresight is far from perfect.

I actually wish more people could get their ideas heard and taken seriously because I'm sure somewhere out there is a guy with a paper that has the potential to overturn paradigms in science. But unfortunately for every paradigm-shifting work of genius there are a thousand wastes of time. And time is money, and that's the most limited resource in this game.

And for someone like me, a non-scientist, I have to trust the experts. I can read the ideas and vet them to the extent that I am able to do so. But at some point I'm going to hit a wall of technicality that I'm not able or willing to scramble over. At that point I'm going to have to give it my *conditional* approval and move on. If I reject the idea that 90% of all experts agree on and I embrace an idea that one or two people promote then on what basis am I lending my trust? It can't be reason. It has to be something else, some kind of faith or fascination with the idea.

I lend my trust on evidence alone. And the consensus of experts is a part of that evidence. I do not see how it could be otherwise.

Past those books? You mean like reading about King Hammurabi and his code of laws - where "an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth" probably came from in the first place? Or do you mean that if I snort enough meth I'll be able to read between the lines? I might've burned a brain cell or two in the '70's, but I didn't do those lines.
Have a cookie.
No! I mean the OT into the NT!
Unless you're 300 lbs...
I've probably done your weight in drugs...
Meth, Acid, Pot, Coke, Morphine, Booze, Paint, gas,
lighter fluid, List goes on...
(No Crack, or real Heroin)
And guess what?
I'm STILL Alive, and Lucid!
WHY??? Why did I survive something that kills most everyone else?
I asked God that question, and the answer was...
When I first heard of Him, and Jesus as a kid...
I Truly believed!
It only took 40 more years to get my act together, and
excape satans grip!
Good, n evil are in the world, and now...
I'm on the Good side!
I truly hope that happens for you... soon!

Eye witnesses like Saul and John of Patmos? You know the chronology of the writings and the compilations of the Councils of Constantine were waaay past the time of eye witness accounts. Do you think there was a stenographer at the Sermon of the Mount?
Don't be obtuse.
Wrong again!
Saul only seen Jesus on the way to Damascus, but was in contact with Him the rest of his life!
The Gospels, and Pauls letters circulated long before
Constintine came, and perverted Christianity with paganism!
But, Hey... Believe what you want!

The family unit is under assault from an ever increasing array of forces, with children enduring the brunt of the attack. Parents are now facing almost impossible odds of successfully rearing their children! Yet, God commands parents to “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it”(Prov. 22:6). But how can parents—one alone or two working together—do this? What chance do they have of rearing moral children in today’s immoral world? What should children be taught? How should they be instructed? And can you be sure that what you teach your children will stay with them for life? God’s Word addresses these and many other questions—and the answers are not what you expect!

You just buy any story. The only religious killings in the USA have been christians and Muslims killing ... well, everyone. Not one murder was ever done for some satanic ritual, not one. Funny you missed that fact.

Can you explain why that book is in many libraries throught the U.S. and Canada.
All you can do is try to belittle anyone who does not buy into your false claims with no evidence to support them. You are correct about evidence not being an element of faith. So why don't you drop this THEORY of evolution with no evidence or produce one shread of evidence to support it! As the old saying goes, "put up or shut up!"
Repeating the same debunked allegations over and over do not make them validated truths. The reason the ToE hasn't been dropped is because there are warehouses full of evidence in support of it.
..
On the other hand? Lets start on something that should be child's play for you. What is the physical evidence that a Global Flood occurred 4500 years ago? Put up or shut up.

When they do polls people who do not want to be preached at will say they are christians just to be left alone but they do not want to hear your crap, do not read the bible or believe in it, and are not christians.
You are a small minority getting smaller. Soon it will be nothing but old ladies and than your cult will die.

Bragging that you survived habitual drug abuse and that you have replaced it with religion doesn't make you lucid, it merely makes me wonder what imbalance you were/are self medicating.

Yes, anyone who formulates a scam, like your bible for example, is usually at least intelligent enough to know that the majority will eventually become too intelligent to fall for that scam. Sadly, your bible was about a thousand years off.
